Mamba Mentality! Ogunbowale’s OT Buzzer Shot sends Irish to NCAA Women’s Final

Mamba Mentality! Ogunbowale’s OT Buzzer Shot sends Irish to NCAA Women’s Final

Arike Ogunbowale etched her name in Notre Dame lore with the shot that lifted the Irish over rival UConn.

Ogunbowale’s jumper from the corner with a second left gave Notre Dame a 91-89 overtime victory Friday night, handing the Huskies their second straight stunning and sudden end to an undefeated season in the national semi-finals.

 


She finished with 27 points as the Irish return to the championship game for the first time since 2015.

 

“I know I just had to shoot it at the last minute,” Ogunbowale said.

 

“I didn’t want to give them a chance to get the ball. I went into Mamba mentality. Kobe’s here, so that’s what I tried to channel.”
